Tatas go Ritzy, buy slice of Boston history

Steeped in hospitality history itself, the Tata Group has added a slice of western legacy to its chronicles by acquiring the landmark Ritz-Carlton in Boston, once part of a hotel chain that engendered the word 'ritzy' to denote posh or fashionable.

The 79-year old hotel will be renamed Taj Boston when the deal with current owner Millennium Partners closes in January.

It will be the group's second hotel in the United States following its purchase of equally ritzy The Pierre in New York's Manhattan last year.
